The Assassin’s Creed has been with us since 2007, and although the first game laid the foundations of both history and gameplay, we can not deny that it was criticized for its repetitive development (quite unfairly we think). But Ubisoft did not stop in its effort and two years later gave us Assassin’s Creed II, that to do a survey we do not doubt that would be the best remembered by the fans.
The story of Ezio Auditore and his adventures as a murderer conquered the heart of public and criticism, improving in everything the original, more elaborate argument, gigantic maps, much more varied missions and a mechanics of movement and combat that continue until our days. It is no coincidence that ACII is the only one who has received two continuations (Brotherhood and Revelations), extending throughout the entirety of Ezio’s life in his crusade against the Templars.
Now, in the middle of 2016, and with Ubisoft abandoning the idea that a new Assassin’s Creed per year is necessary, we get The Ezio Collection, a remastering to 1080p that is the way to show the trilogy to those who did not have the opportunity to Play it in your day. Let’s see if it is worthwhile to enter once more in the Animus.
The pack, in addition to the three games in the Ezio trilogy, contains all the DLCs that came out for them, both history and cosmetics, and also attached the short “Assassin’s Creed Lineage” and “Assassin’s Creed Embers”. Textures have been improved and loading times have been reduced considerably, but along the way we have lost the multiplayer mode, Assassin’s Creed review present in Brotherhood and Revelations, a kind of game of cat and mouse, which was not without its grace, but That we imagine that it did not arouse great sympathies among the public if it has been avoided here, so either for that reason or for not having to maintain the servers, this collection is limited to the scope of a single player, who does not give for little.
We have three games at the price of one full of missions, with their secrets, collectibles, puzzles, crypts, watchtowers and everything that has made the saga one of the most sold in recent years. Of course we can play them in the order we choose. From the beginning as Ezio’s murderer in Florence and Venice, his maturity during his years in Rome guiding the brotherhood of murderers or his travels in Constantinople trying to unravel the mysteries left by Altair, everything is within reach as long as we press the Start button, if Well one step in order is common sense if you are new to the saga.
Speaking of the graphic changes introduced by this remastering, apart from the stable 1080p and 30fps, obviously games benefit from the improvement in light and shading, everything looks sharper and clearer, better defined. We want to make it clear that the games already looked great when they left, but the face wash is appreciated. Some will miss a bigger change, but when you replay a game of just 7 years old you can not expect a miracle.
Finally, if you want to revive the laurels of a saga that defined the sandbox genre with its best deliveries, you should not go any further, The Ezio Collection is one of the most recommended purchases you can make for Christmas, both in its Version of 45 euros as in its special version of 80.
